The Carlile Room Dinner Series
Tom Douglas’s Paramount Theater adjacent restaurant is launching a dinner series called Work Release. Seattle line cooks, sous chefs, and chefs de cuisine will take a break from their normal grind and be guest chefs in the Carlile Room kitchen. The first to break from their culinary box is the Carlile Room’s own Henryk Bansales. He’ll be kicking off the inaugural dinner with three courses of the Indian food he eats on his days off: potato samosas with a trio of fresh chutneys, chicken tikka, chai brulee for dessert, and more. Dinner is at 7, includes drink pairings such as a boozy apricot lassi, and tickets are $55.

Jamaican Feast at Marjorie
This Capitol Hill restaurant feels like your eating in owner Donna Moodie’s home; pictures of Moodie’s family line the walls and Moodie herself chats with diners throughout the evening. But this Sunday, the usual restaurant vibe and menu will give way to a restaurant-wide Jamaican feast. Chef Isaac Hutchins will be serving up curry goat, jerk chicken, oxtail stew, and other Jamaican-inspired small plates and desserts. There will be two seatings: 4pm for $45 and another at 7:30pm for $60.
Butchery Class and Rosé Lunch at Seven Beef

Tickets are $120 for a four-hour long class that begins at 10am at the Central District steak house.
